Kenya's only private island resort, The Sands at Chale Island, is located 10km south of Diani Beach and 600 meters from the mainland.

Crossing over is possible around the clock by boat or tractor (Wde dependent). 

The island is 1.2 km long and 0.8 km wide in north-south orientaWon.

It is divided into two parts: the Hotel Resort and a sacred forest, called "Kaya". The hotel is located in a 60000 sqm large nature reserve with direct access to a secluded, private beach.

Endangered sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach each season.

The wide sandy bay is protected by a mighty coral reef. Inside the island is a mangrove lake fed by seawater with the natural changing of the Wdes.

The island's colourful flora and fauna and its primate, bird and insect life make it a truly magical place where comfort meets nature.


Chale Island is a mystical fusion of nature, comfort, elegance and romance.

A perfect blend of Swahili style architecture, Italian Stucko works, an unique Lamu furniture, African art and varnished mahogany characterises the hotel.

 Complimentary wireless internet is available throughout the hotel.

Chale Island uses electricity generators to supply energy.

In order to be environmentally conscious, all rooms are supplied with power between 6:00PM and 10:00AM. Exceptions are the Penthouses, Suite on the rocks, Overwater Suite and the common areas, including the bar, restaurant and reception which have power 24 hours a day.

A spa and wellness center sits on the edge of the island's mangrove forest, offering a range of massage treatments and pampering sessions in a tranquil natural environment.

There are three swimming pools.

The main pool with freshwater is located near the reception and is connected by a small waterfall with a Jacuzzi.

A pool with a bar and sun terrace is situated between the two apartment buildings.

Sun beds and parasols are available free of charge at both pools and at the beach.

Next to the spa and fitness areas lies a saltwater swimming pool overlooking the sea.

At high Wde, it is possible to swim through the mangroves from the pool to the jefy.
